My marble cal semi with same set up can put 16mm glass marbles though 1/2'' pine board, still fly 3ish meters and go half way into my fence 2 by 4s and if i shoot at steel plate the marble become sand.

Thats with a 36cc firing tank at 600psi and a 650mm barrel.

My parts came in the other week...I can't wait to assemble it. :) I got 5 slides for around 35 AUSD, and I've got most of my other parts waiting for assembly. It's basically just going to the local plumbing store and getting all the fittings :D

fyi, links to my qev and slide;

That's what I thought when I looked at those qevs, but i found ones rated at 90 (see posted above).

Not sure about the slide however.

What's going to fail? They're pretty simple, especially the QEV. Anything made of metal like that should be able to take a few hundred PSI and the piston shouldn't fail, even if it does it's not the end of the world.

Is it metal though, looks a bit like plastic to me?

Sounds silly I know, but as was pointed out the body is alloy and the piston is a sturdy bit of rubber, I would be comfortable using it at 300 psi at least.

... and to answer your original question, it looks identical to the one I have (Mine is "QE-02", this is "QE-04") except chamber and pilot ports are 1/2" BSP.

Thanks JSR, I think I'll just disregard the threads and epoxy a chamber on. Could square steel tubing hold a fair amount of pressure?

BTW, how could you see my post?

Square tubing is generally bad for holding pressure because it puts loads of force on a flat surface and that = bad. Cylindrical pipe holds the pressure much better.

As Gun Freak pointed out, square tubing puts a lot of force on the flat surfaces which in turn places immense stress on the corners. Unless it was exceptionally thick walled section and I was only using low pressure I would not consider it as a chamber.

You needed to remove the space between the url and the [/url] tag.

Simple answer: you don't :)

Depends on the exact mechanism, you explain you're making a ball dispenser for one of these:
